‘I’m a certified teacher of Spanish and English (Moscow State Linguistic University, degree in linguistics and foreign language teaching). My native language is Russian but I've lived and worked in Spain and I have C2 level in DELE exam, which is a proficiency level.
I'm a teacher of Spanish at Language School of Ministry of Economic Development. I've worked both with groups and on a one-to-one basis I've also worked successfully with students from France, Germany and the UK.
I'm sure you'll enjoy learning with me!’
Language teacher & coach at The SLT way
Language coach and teacher at The SLT way. Teaches Russian, Spanish and English
Yana has been teaching and training in all kinds of situations since 2008, and has also helped people learn languages online since 2011.
‘I’m a very creative teacher and my students are never bored!’
‘I adapt my lessons according to each student. We can use textbooks, online resources, videos, books, articles, songs - basically anything that can help you learn more quickly, and enjoy our classes together!’
‘We can use many different kinds of material. It all depends on the student’s needs: some students have a very specific career goal while other are looking for a more general approach. We won’t work the same if you have an elementary or an advanced level.
Depending on your goals and preferences, we can focus on reading, pronunciation, conversation, listening, we can play games, practice grammar, talk about history…’
Yana’s proficiency in Spanish, English and French make her the perfect fit for the speakers of those languages looking to learn Russian.
What our students say:
‘An open and innovative approach in language learning. I recommend +++’
‘More than a lesson: a moment where you can share, learn and talk about many different topics, which has very often allowed me to learn the language without even realizing it. It then feels natural and saves you from the many frustrations one can feel at school or in the workplace. For the first time today, at 25, I feel like I am starting to learn and most importantly to succeed!’
‘Pleasantly surprised, I didn’t think it was possible to learn this way!’
‘Extraordinary. I’m 26 and I decided to learn a language in order to speak it fluently. Clearly, he is the best language teacher I have ever had in all my education. In less than a month with him, I already reached a level I could get to in a year with a normal teacher. ‘
‘We’ve pinpointed exactly where my problem was, where there was a major obstacle.’
‘He knew how to explain things quickly with precision. He could meet my expectations referring to his experience with his students and his knowledge of the different exams. His advice allow you to improve and target specific difficulties.’
‘I am very happy I found this coach who helped me understand my results and advised me throughout the year, which allowed me to get an excellent grade for this course and to pass my degree with distinction. Thank you! ‘
‘He took the time to prepare individualized lessons which respond to specific needs, and he offers tools that enable the student to go forward independently. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to invest in a foreign language.’
‘He adapts very well to his students. I love his methods and he knows language learning very well. For good advice and quick progress, just go for it and book a lesson ;-)’
‘Very good instructor, a well-suited teaching style, consistently good-tempered and quality lessons, thank you. It’s a pleasure to take classes with you, I can see clear progress week after week… ‘
‘The way you teach languages is very new to me! I don’t know whether it’s instinctive or if you’ve worked on it but your teaching style feels very natural.’
